Offensive lineman Braden Smith announced Wednesday that he will be joining Auburn for the 2014 NCAA College Football season after making the pledge to commit to them on National Signing Day.
Smith was a five-star recruit out of Olathe South, and he has been one of 13 football players to make their announcements during the Signing Day coverage today.
According to Scout.com he was the top-ranked guard in the class of 2014, and Auburn will surely be delighted to get a high quality player such as Smith.
Prior to his announcement, he had narrowed his choices to Texas A&M, Texas Christian and Auburn.
Smith had been somewhat of a recruiting uncertainty all the way down until today.
He had managed to keep his decision close to his chest, but live on ESPNU he made his pledge to Auburn in what will always be marked as a significant day in the lineman's life.
